Landscapes of Bondage and Refuge: Revisiting Enslavement, Resistance, and Memory in the Native and Colonial Northeast
(Berwick Academy Arts Center)
Native American communities of the Northeast maintained deep traditions of sheltering relations and refugees during times of conflict. Dr. Christine DeLucia brings to light some important yet overlooked dimensions of Indigenous enslavement and unfreedom in colonial New England and the Atlantic World. Highlighting landscapes that played powerful roles in processes of captivity and in bids for liberation and security, she weaves together documentary sources with other forms of knowledge, including material culture objects and oral traditions.
